Creamy Cheese & Ham French Toast Sandwiches

Preheat the oven or an air fryer to 180 ºC. 

Mix the cheddar cheese, cream cheese and chives in a medium bowl.

In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, milk and salt together until well combined. 

Spread the cream cheese mixture on the inside of both slices of the sandwich and add a piece of gypsy ham. Close the sandwich with the remaining slice. Soak the bread slices in the egg mixture for about 1-2 minutes a side until soaked through. (Note: if you find it easier, you can soak the bread slices individually before assembling).

Melt a dollop of Flora Gold in a large frying pan over medium heat. 

Fry each sandwich until golden, adding extra Flora Gold during the frying process. 

Place the sandwiches onto a baking tray and finish in the oven or air fryer for roughly 10 minutes for the egg to cook through. Enjoy while warm and melty.
